San Pedro is a little beach town on Ambergris Cay in Belize. Accommodations in town are reasonably priced, but above typical backpacker levels. Away from town there are expensive resorts. Food is good, cheap and always accompanied by Marie Sharp's habanero pepper sauce. The scuba diving is noted for large numbers of nurse sharks, spotted eagle rays, black grouper and Jewfish.
Chamonix is a ski resort in the Southeast of France not far from Geneva. It sits in the valley by Mount Blanc. You know the difference between France and Switzerland immediately. The roads have tolls and the petrol costs more in France.
Vail was built as a planned city from the ground up, unlike some of the other Colorado ski resorts that started out as mining towns. Photos out in the open arid areas were taken about 15 miles Northwest of Vail.
These photos were taken at last Saturday’s Via Colori next to city hall in downtown Houston and the Artcrawl at the Nance Street warehouse district North of downtown Houston. The weather that day, and since, has been more like Seattle than Texas, cold, wet and overcast. Some of the artists made use of the rain water to rub their pastels into the pavement. Others said they were cold, but relieved to have a reduced level of dust.
